Lotus R6 replication settings change by themselves
Posted on 2004-11-11
I'm setting up users email client for remote access. Make a local replica of their mail file. Set it to replicate at the start and end of session. Then I set up the "internet" location with a connection to our R6 server and tell it to do the same as far as replication settings.
The replication settings within the location document are enable replication, create new replicas immediately or next replication, replicate when notes starts, prompt to replicate when notes shuts down.
I am able to set this up and perform a replication and all is well.
I call the user down to train them on how to do this and get an error that replication failed. I go to look at the settings and see entirely different settings. What I see now are settings to replicate on the hour, but not when Notes begins or shuts down. The end user can successfully manually replicate, but will not be prompted at the correct time.
I have taken this question to Lotus, but was told that it's not a popular enough problem for them to look at.
I have had this happen to three different end users, however at least that many more remote users have been setup identically and it worked fine.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
